Dark Funeral – Unchain My Soul

Dark Funeral is a Swedish black metal band from Stockholm, founded by guitarists Blackmoon and Lord Ahriman in 1993.

From tombs of forgotten times,
I summon thee from thy sleep
Across the river, ferocious and wild,
from the graves and vaults of my thoughts

I call for you my brother let me leave this awful life
and drift away beyond the borders of this realm
You wandered off before me, now come back and pick me up
Unchain my soul and bring me where all light will fade
I cannot stay, I will not wait, I have to leave
this world forever, I swear not to return
Behind their masks there stand but slaves and servitude
was not our trade so rise and set me free and bring me home

So rise from the dead
Release me from this pain
I raise the dead
To unfold the gates to Hell

I summon all the forces from the darkness that gave birth
to our exsistence and lit the hellish flames
We shall stand tall and wander
Where the heavens can not reach
us as the path will lead into the dark and cold
We can not stay and wait, the passage has been cleared
The gates are open, there is no turning back
Those left behind, shall die as slaves, as servants of
their humble ways and Satan will be laughing from his throne

So rise from the dead
Release me from these chains
I raise the dead
To reclaim my throne in Hell

And before the rise of dawn, my soul will be free

I call for you my brother let me leave this awful life
and drift away beyond the borders of this realm
You wandered off before me, now come back and pick me up
Unchain my soul and bring me where all light will fade
I cannot stay, I will not wait, I have to leave
this world forever, I swear not to return
Behind their masks there stand but slaves and servitude
was not our trade so rise and set me free and bring me home

So rise from the dead
Release me from this pain
I raise the dead
To unfold the gates to Hell
So rise from the dead
Release me from these chains
I raise the dead
To reclaim my throne in Hell

Sabaton – Inmate 4859

Sabaton is a Swedish heavy metal band from Falun, active since 1999. Most of their songs are written about historical events such as war or heroism.

The dawn of century, a boy born by a lake
Resettled from Karelia’s plains
Grown to a man in exile as the great war came
Unleashed it’s shadow on his world

Oh, no
Oh, no
Who knows his name?

Inmate in hell or a hero imprisoned?
Soldier in Auschwitz, who knows his name?
Locked in a cell, waging war from the prison
Hiding in Auschwitz, who hides behind 4859?

Outside help never came, decided to break free
The end of april -43,
Join the uprising, fight on the streets while hiding his rank
Takes command all while serving his country in need.

Sent to a prison, where the heroes are judged as traitors
Accused of treason by his own
Sentenced by countrymen under pressure of foreign influence
Men he once fought to free

Oh, no
Oh, no
We know his name!

Inmate in hell or a hero imprisoned?
Soldier in Auschwitz, we know his name!
Locked in a cell, waging war from the prison
Hiding in Auschwitz, he hides behind 4859!

White eagle
Blood of Heroes
In Heaven

Forever
Rest in Heaven
True Hero

Music: Brodén / Lyrics: Brodén / Sundström

As I don’t know of a good live recording, here’s some background info to the song from Sabaton.

Avatar – Let Us Die

Avatar is a Swedish heavy metal band, formed in Gothenburg, in 2001.

Oh, what a man
Goes as far as he can
For country and king
Nothing will stop him
Oh, what a man
The master of war
He’s coming for more
He’s raping your children

Handsome and brave
He will dig out our grave
And all the living things
Dies as he’s watching
Handsome and brave
His weapon is rape
We cannot escape
He’s taking your children

What will they take
When everything’s lost?
What will they take
Oh, everything’s lost!

If you don’t want us to live
Let us die
There’s too much pain to take in

We’ve lost our homes
To the man on the throne
Victorious king
His gun does the talking
We’ve lost our homes
Abandon all hope
He’s making you choke
Enslaving your children

Sabaton – The Final Solution

Sabaton is a Swedish heavy metal band from Falun, active since 1999. Most of their songs are written about historical events such as war or heroism.

Country in depression
Nation in despair
One man seeking reasons everywhere
Growing hate and anger
The Fuhrer’s orders were precise
Who was to be blamed and pay the price!

Wicked propaganda
Turning neighbors into foes
Soldiers of the Third Reich searching homes
And then the former friends are watching
As they are rounded up one by one
Times of prosecutions has begun

Ever since it started
On Kristallnacht ’38
When liberty died
And truth was denied
Sent away on train on a one way trip to hell
Enter the gates Auschwitz awaits

When freedom burns
The final solution
Dreams fade away and all hope turns to dust
When millions burn
The curtain has fallen
Lost to the world as they perish in flames

There was a country in depression
There was a nation in despair
One man finding reasons everywhere
Then there was raising hate and anger
The Fuhrer’s orders still apply
Who was to be blamed and send to die

Ever since it started
On Kristallnacht ’38
When liberty died
And truth was denied
Sent away on train on a one way trip to hell
Enter the gates Auschwitz awaits

When freedom burns
The final solution
Dreams fade away and all hope turns to dust
When millions burn
The curtain has fallen
Lost to the world as they perish in flames

When freedom burns
The final solution
Dreams fade away and all hope turns to dust
When millions burn
The curtain has fallen
Lost to the world as they perish in flames

Music: Brodén / Lyrics: Brodén / Sundström

Live @Cracow, 2017

Arch Enemy – First Day In Hell

Arch Enemy is a Swedish melodic death metal band, from Halmstad, formed in 1995.

Torn from home
Sent down death’s railroad are we

When we wake up tomorrow
Will we still be wearing this curse?
Will we wake up tomorrow?
Which punishment is worse?

Day one:
No sun
Stripped of our names
Now we are merely numbers
Permanently inked in the flames

Our kind
Our existence lights the fire
Igniting hell on earth
Archangels bending crosses hooked

Innocent men, women, children
Sentenced before conviction
With golden stars to guide them
Their gavel is the end of a gun

Day two:
Lived through
More culprits arrive
Every cage so crowded
How will we survive through the night?

Our kind
Our existence lights the fire
Igniting hell on earth
Archangels bending crosses
Hooked

First day in hell

First day in hell
See the terror in abandoned gazes
Fear sunken eyes
Get the guards and walk a dozen paces
Saturnine

First day in hell
Incarcerated without reason
Doomed by blood
Anti-venom for a poisoned nation
Our birth right

Week five:
Alive
Soon out of time
After all that I’ve here witnessed
There’s no value in life

Our kind
Our existence lights the fire
Igniting hell on earth
Archangels bending crosses
Hooked

First day in hell

First week in hell
See the terror in abandoned gazes
Fear sunken eyes
Get the guards and walk a dozen paces
Saturnine

First month in hell
Incarcerated without reason
Doomed by blood
Anti-venom for a poisoned nation
Our birth right

Last day in hell

Revolver: Arch Enemy’s “First Day in Hell”: Lyric Dissector, Ep. 1

The vocalist was inspired to write the song by her grandparents, both of whom survived the Holocaust. “I heard these stories from them,” she explains, “and I thought it was about time to just take this personal weight that I had in this historic event and translate it into a song.”

For more in depth background information on the Holocaust, I would suggest heading to Yad Vashem – The World Holocaust Remembrance Center.

Yad Vashem (Hebrew: יָד וַשֵׁם‎; literally, “a monument and a name”), established in 1953, is Israel’s official memorial to the victims of the Holocaust, located on the western slope of Mount Herzl in western Jerusalem, Israel.
